London: Margaret Howell’s clothes always conjure nostalgic scenes – remote coastal towns, charming cottages, cozy fires – and this season the designer served up her classic brand of British bucolic with on-trend influences from menswear and the great outdoors. Workman aprons and hunting vests were turned into chic separates, and utilitarian toggles, tabs and flap pockets detailed her signature outerwear. Her refined, belted silhouette also loosened up with boxy shearling coats, pegged corduroy pants and heather grey boyfriend sweaters. Vintage-y plaid overcoats and humble shirtdresses furthered the rugged-grunge aspect, although in Howell’s hands, the look read more like “lovingly worn” than rock ‘n’ roll throwback.
